Abstract [en]

This study finds out if components of GDP can explain FDI inflow better than GDP itself. The analysis is based on two equations. The first equation includes GDP as one of determinants of FDI inflow and the other one substitute GDP with consumption expenditure and government expenditure as determinants of FDI inflow. The equations are estimated for four groups of data. The first group includes 103 countries from around the world. Then the countries are divided into three groups: high income countries, middle income countries and low income countries. Along with other determinants of FDI inflow, consumption expenditure is found to be a significant determinant for middle income and low income countries. Government expenditure is found to be a significant determinant for global FDI inflow and high income countries FDI inflow. GDP is also found to be a significant determinant for global, middle income countries and low income countries FDI inflow. Comparing the results of estimations from the two equations shows that both equations have equivalent explanatory power. Thus a choice between the two equations depends on the purpose of the selector and the groups of countries studied by the selector.
